September weather in North Carolina can be a total gamble: it could be sweltering hot, more similar to July heat than fall; the humidity can make the air thick; it could even hurricane! Fortunately for Grace & Davion, their wedding day heralded a break in a heat wave, coming in with gorgeous low-80s temperatures, refreshing breezes, and the most perfect golden sunshine which was still no match for the brilliance of their smiles all day.

Although these long-time sweethearts—and I mean, 11 years, dating since middle school, long-time—postponed their big celebration because of COVID-19, they kept their original wedding date and held their ceremony in the beautiful gardens of the Borden Building at Fred Fletcher Park as planned. Farmers' Market flowers adorned the chic copper arbor and Grace and her bridesmaids; the ladies' forest green dresses and men's light gray suits kept the elegance level high; and Grace's sweet smiling tears as she took herself down the aisle matched Davion's as he saw his long-awaited bride coming towards him. Their sweet and personal ceremony—which included an excerpt from Grace's diary from around the time they started dating!—culminated in toasts from both Grace's grandfather and Davion himself. Guests raised glasses to this sweet couple, looking forward to another celebration on their first anniversary next year!

And lest I forget to mention it: enjoy the gorgeous light in the extensive portrait session we made time for after guests, family, and friends had gone their separate ways. These two are a dream to photograph, and the gorgeous evening sunshine and perfect foliage did nothing but make my job easy.

I am so grateful to have gotten to be a part of Grace & Davion's beautiful intimate wedding ceremony, and can't wait to celebrate with them again next year! Enjoy a selection of my favorites from the day below, and wish them joy in the comments!
